Nothing in this book is true. 
"Live by the foma* that make you brave 
and kind and healthy and happy." 
— The Books of Bokonon. 1 :5 
^Harmless untruths 






It has been said before and 
will be said again — 
the people make the place. 













The campus is at times beautiful, even mystic 



but the inhabitants are more interesting.

"I tended to think when I made talks that ideas were 
more important than men, I felt that what we were 
always trying to do was to come up with the smart 
answers, and it didn't really make any difference who 
had the answer. I thought that a great school was a 
school whose boys sought out the great ideas, and that 
therefore the Headmaster's job was to pick men who 
gave their lives to scholarship, and to reading, and to 
study, and to familiarity with the great ideas." 

John M. Kemper 




COORDINATION 
a-CERTS itself 
Two, two, two schools in one! 

And that's the joy of coordination, you get warmth 
and openness plus an intellectually challenging aca- 
demic environment in one package — so you can have 
fun and still emerge with that eastern seaboard seal of 
approval. Just remember, if he passed you once, we 
can't guarantee he'll pass you again. 









The increased competition 
which is part of coordination 
has brought some negative 
results. Pride, contempt, 
and ranking have resulted 
in a greater tendency to 
categorize institutional and 
sexual differences.

Many of us are at Abbot to 
learn as well as to study.

Because Abbot is such a tight community, we often find it hard to be alone. Sometimes the tension is so 
great that you feel you have to get away - even if only for a few hours. 





Faculty & Administration 




At Abbot, Donald A. Gordon has focused his 
attention on creating a positive environment and 
stronger sense of community. To the senior class, 
and in particular those of us who started Abbot as 
preps, D.A.G. seems almost a peer, as he began 
when we began four years ago.

Through February Week, New School, and a 
great variety of minors. Abbot encourages 
students to experiment. 







While many of us continue to dabble, a handful have 
learned to concentrate in one area. These few, especially 
those whose talent lies in a non-academic field, are looked 
up to by the community at large. Unfortunately, some 
students feel that they must specialize to gain recognition 
and therefore limit their growth.

We expect events in our lives to go 
in cycles. We have learned to direct 
our growth — a pattern has been set. 





S.A.T.'s 

I think that I shall never see 

A waste quite like an S.A.T. 

An S A.T. is just a test 

To find which people guess the best. 

With paragraphs of boring lore 

Penned before the Civil War. 

I think erosion is to rocks . . . 

And blacken in the proper box. 

For un -computer types like me 

Such nonsense is an S.A.T. 

Poems are changed by fools like me 

But God would blow his S.A.T.

"... absurdity is very much 
needed on this earth of ours. 
Indeed, the whole universe is 
founded on absurdity, and 
perhaps, without absurdity 
there would be nothing at all. 
There are a few things we do 
know, after all." 

"And what do you know?" 

"I don't understand 
anything," Ivan said, like a 
man in delirium, "and I don't 
wish to understand anything. 
The moment I start wanting to 
understand something, I distort 
the true picture, when what 
I really want is to stick to the 
facts."

And, as in uffish thought he stood. 
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, 
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, 
And burled as it came! 



One, two! One, two! And through and through 
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! 
He left it dead, and with it's head 
He went galumphing back. 

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? 
Come to my arms, my beamish boy! 
O frajous day! Callooh! Callay!" 
He chortled in his joy. 

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves 
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: 
All mimsy were the borogoves, 
And the mome raths outgrabe.

The Road Not Taken 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, 
And sorry I could not travel both 
And be one traveler, long I stood 
And looked down one as far as I could 
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 

Then too the other, as just as fair, 
And having perhaps the better claim, 
Because it was grassy and wanted wear; 
Though as for that the passing there 
Had worn them really about the same, 

And both that morning equally lay 
In leaves no step had trodden black. 
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, 
I doubted if I should ever come back. 



Linda Rawson

I shall be telling with a sigh 
Somewhere ages and ages hence:

I took the one less traveled by. 
And that has made all the difference.

Good and bad are but names very readily transferable

Thus: non-existence does not exist; that is, there is no such 
thing as nothing. Therefore, what is, is eternal for if not, it 
must have risen from, or must end in, nothing; and nothing 
does not exist. Motion is an illusion, for a thing can move only 
by going into empty space, i.e. nothing. Matter is uniform, for 
it cannot be mixed with nothing to become rarer; the Universe 
is a motionless, uniform, spherical plenum.

Prep year was one of adjustment, and it represented the end of the antiquated 
social regulations that had previously governed Abbot life. As Juniors, we expe- 
rienced periods of unrest starting with the Oct. 15th moratorium and continuing 
throughout the year. Senior-mid year brought about a unification within the 
class, and a development of individual interests. 

With the arrival of senior year came the pressure of college applications and 
the responsibility of student -run organizations. Because of this increased in- 
volvement with the school, we developed a rapport with certain members of the 
administration. This rapport alleviated some of the superficial worries of each 
student figurehead and provided security. 

Once the myth of senior superiority was dispelled, college applications were 
mailed, and C.S.C. A.R.A.. Town Meeting, et al. were running as smoothly as 
could be expected, we were able to focus upon the essence of senior year — 
sentimentality. As I think over the school's progress and mine, 1 get that feeling 
of — "I wish that I had done more." To tell that to anyone is useless for it is 
something that each person must come to realize on her own. None of us will 
ever forget the friendships and guidance that we have found at Abbot. The 
emotions that stem from these have contributed to our maturity. From these 
successful relationships and our personal motivation to learn comes the power 
to accept, and even enjoy, our often hectic lives. 

Unfortunately. I cannot apply these astute revelations to only the Class of '72 
for I know that this growth at Abbot has been experienced in the past and will 
be experienced by the Class of '73, 74, '75, and those to follow.

Town Meeting enables each individul, student or 
faculty, to vote on issues of importance to the commu- 
nity. This year we have eliminated such minutia as 
vending machines and discussions of apathy from our 
agenda. Instead we have been involved in creating 
constructive legislation which has allowed us to direct- 
ly influence the Abbot morale. 

1) A compromise between a strict quorum and 
no quorum at all 

2) Smoking for all four classes 

3) Room visiting reports, proposal, veto, and then . 
and then . . .the trial 2/20/72

Man, we've been through some bad times; times when everything 
turns to bitterness. You see the absurdity of life as from another 
dimension of time or space. People disappoint you. Silver turns out to 
be cheap tin. And you're at the end of the buck. 

But then there's something about that "sense of achievement." You 
don't try to pin it down. It's exalting, pure, spiritual maybe. It frees you 
from the baseness placing you higher, nearer. 

We've met.

"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself 
do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or 
not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's 
training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly"
